Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 29 settembre 2018

The European Commission (EC)-funded Business Beyond Borders sessions, and their outcomes, at Renewable Energy India Expo 2018 (REI) (18-20 September 2018, Greater Noida) were praised by H.E. the EU Ambassador to India, Mr. Tomasz Kozlowski, as ‘the kind of events we need to move the business, energy and sustainable development agenda forward between the EU and India’.
A visiting delegation of about 80 EUR representatives took part in the EU-India Energy and Climate Days & Business Beyond Borders activities over the past week, taking place in New Delhi and Greater Noida.Giving the welcome address at the ‘India and EU – Co-Creation of Projects in alignment with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)’ dialogue session on Friday, which marked the end of the EU-India Clean Energy Days, EU Ambassador Kozlowski added, when addressing the the gap between ideas and concrete actions in the renewable energy sector: ‘We are now working on practical solutions. That’s why it’s important to come together to foster business opportunities between European and Indian companies’. EU Ambassador Kozlowski also announced some of the deals struck between EU and Indian companies during the Business Beyond Borders (BBB) meetings.Over the past week, more than 364 renewable energy Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Clusters from 34 countries (including 121 EU Companies from 19 countries) took part in 537 meetings during the Business Beyond Borders matchmaking sessions at REI 2018. Besides the matchmaking meetings and the dialogue session on SDGs, companies registered for the BBB event at REI 2018 also took part in the ‘Doing Business in India’ seminar; and the European Night Networking Evening. Some of the European clusters present at REI 2018 also had the opportunity to have ministerial meetings at the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy of India.Representing both Archenerg Cluster from Hungary and COSMENERG-4i ‘Global Clusters for Renewable Energy and Environmental Technologies’, the biggest partnership in Central and Eastern Europe comprising 450 companies, Ramon Vivanco Mugarra considered the BBB matchmaking sessions at REI 2018 to be an added-value for COSMENERG-4i: ’India has a huge potential and technologies when it comes to renewable energy, which is a great asset in the European market. I had the chance to meet different companies which are willing to join our alliance in Europe, so I’m pretty happy with the outcome of my BBB meetings’.Business Beyond Borders, a project financed by the European Commission, helps businesses, especially SMEs and clusters, to trade across borders and explore third markets. It has held eight successful international events (in Madrid, Cape Town, Paris, Milan, Cannes, Santiago, Sydney and Tehran) where over 300 new business partnerships have been agreed.The Business Beyond Borders event at REI 2018 was organised in collaboration with the Delegation of the European Union to India; the European Business Technology Centre (EBTC); and UBM India. The final Business Beyond Borders matchmaking event will take place at VISION (6 – 8 November, Stuttgart, Germany); and target companies operating in the machine vision industry.
